The packages feature of Rgui is great! However it looks the directory structure
was changed for http://cran.r-project.org/bin/windows/contrib/, such that some
the packages are now under /rw1030 (e.g., VR) and are not found by
install.packages(). Thus the error message:

trying URL `http://cran.r-project.org/bin/windows/contrib/VR.zip'
Error in download.file(url, destfile, method, mode = "wb") :
        cannot open: HTTP status was `404'
